Divorce Mediation

In Divorce Mediation, Patrice works with spouses as a neutral mediator in a series of private sessions. With Patrice’s guidance, spouses identify issues, gather information needed to make informed decisions, and work to develop mutually agreeable solutions. Mediation can be a very good path to a more peaceful resolution of issues, and a mutually created and practical plan for moving forward into post-divorce lives.

Collaborative Divorce

As an experienced Collaborative Divorce Attorney, Patrice offers representation in this very flexible, private process. Collaborative Divorce can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a given family and is supported by a Professional Team (specially trained attorneys and a neutral Coach/Facilitator) according to a family’s needs, interests, and goals. The result can be a more peaceful resolution of past issues, and a mutually crafted road map for moving forward into post-divorce lives.

Review Counsel

Patrice often acts as an advisor/advocate to support individuals going through divorce mediation (with a mediator other than her). In this role, Patrice provides her clients the benefit of independent counsel even while they pursue a non-adversarial resolution to their divorce. This work usually happens in meetings outside the mediation sessions.

Attorney-Assisted Negotiation

Patrice often represents individual spouses in divorce negotiations that don’t fall into a clear process definition. Sometimes, spouses begin discussions directly with each other, but run into stumbling blocks or simply need help finalizing an agreement. If both spouses are committed to keeping the divorce process out of court, Attorney Assisted Divorce Negotiation can be effective in concluding the case. Patrice can only represent a single spouse in this capacity, but can engage directly with the other spouse or that person’s attorney.
